La Recoleta Cemetery, Buenos Aires

One of the major tourist attractions in Buenos Aires is the Recoleta Cemetery. The place is literally a mountain of dead people. The cemetery contains 4691 above ground vaults, 94 of which have been declared national National Historical Monuments by the Argentine government. Several notable people are buried here such as Napoleons granddaughter.  Walking through the cemetery, the tiled floor would crack, and my brain would flood with images of falling through the floor to the endless piles of tombs below.
